Well there are times when we can't avoid having head injuries but I just wonder on how bikers and other sports such as skating, don't use helmets at all-I meant most of the people who are into this activities. Don't they know what head injury can do to them? I think it should be taught in schools on how important helmets are and how head injuries can affect a person.

Thank you for this. This is really helpful. I have a niece that just turned 1 and she's pretty naughty. She got some bruises on the head already and this information that you provided might come handy.

Bryan said that "The head is the most complicated part of the body which could be injured - it may lead the patient to become comatose." I agree about this that's why we should have always a first aid kits and first aid supplies for an emergency.
